What rudeness. Will you all just stop it.   This is What Did The Postie Bring You - he brought beans, in bags. The place to discuss the contents is either under the roasters own thread if they ha

Yemenia comes from Euphoria.

I have been eyeballing the Gardelli one, might order that in December. It ain't cheap.

Ahh okay. It really really isn't cheap!

I couldn't find any Geisha on ONA, I guess it's discontinued?

A little box from @coffeechap containing a bong isolator and PPK for my La Pavoni Pro. An hour later and it's all installed. Gamechanging setup and makes the whole machine so much easier to deal with.

I was one of the reserve espressos two months ago ish. They change those pretty often.

I find myself in a nice position with my Colonna subscription. This month's Rare offering is a Panama Gesha and I was also sent a free 60g sample of the Limited Release Rare beans... Also a Gesha. The Limited Release is a Colombian. Looking forward to trying both!

A Sage DTP. The steam wand is broken and I know sage isn't fantastic but it was such a bargain and it's nice to finally have an espresso machine. I pulled 2 test shots with my LSOL from Vagabond which need some work but were still decent straight out of the box.

Something new to try..

 

Chai syrup from @Crownandcanvas

I will try it with coffee, but I am super keen to try it in chocolate ( am making some chocolates for stockings and currently trying different flavourings)

 

PURE...

The best bit, is that it has no preservatives or fillers, or stabilisers or emulsifiers , you get the gist, it is simply pure sugar , spices and water.

Flavour...

I tried a bit neat so I could get an idea of the strength and spice ratios, and it is surprisingly mellow..I make my own chai spices, never thought to make a syrup, but my spice mix is, well, spicey, sometimes way too much fire, am often heavy handed on ginger and cinnamon myself, but this syrup is mellow yet all the notes are there so not muted in any way, but soothing is the best way I can describe it, so I think I will be adding it to something that just melts in the mouth, rather than a crunch or chew, I am really going to enjoy experimenting with this👍

I'm so glad this turned up in one piece! - I served 20ml of this with some steamed milk to a customer over the weekend who didnt drink coffee and they described it as a 'Hug in a cup' which summed it up perfectly for me!

Also if you're into your baking, Henny & Joes post some great recipes on their website which this can be used in, I think I'm going to have to try the apple crumble/strudel at some point towards Christmas!

Thank-you for this - I think I will try the chai tea loaf but vegan (vegan egg) and gluten free flour ( and dates instead of raisins and sultanas..erm..starting to sound like triggers broom!) - I make a banana vegan loaf like this and maybe the chai will work with that too??

I am a bit confused about the chai apple crumble pie - the recipe is definitely a crumble but the picture is of a tart tatin ? I am rather tired so maybe I am missing the point somewhere right now, but my neighbour loves apple crumble so will definitely need to try this out.

SO many choices😁

 

The bottle was definitely in one piece, it was wrapped really really well.

I didn't know I needed a filter holder until I bought one. Much, much nicer than slinging them in a cupboard!

Another early Niche December delivery, over the moon! My 58.4mm tamper came the same day after being delayed for weeks, good timing!

Now i can get the most out of my Lelit Elizabeth that I've had for a few months, the real journey starts here!

Need a leveller/distribution tool next, will improvise for now 🤓

Next step is to discover new local roasters, and a decaff bean, although quite like the Sainsburys Fair Trade Columbian Decaff. 😈

Excellent! Just an observation: it’s best not to leave the PF fully engaged when the machine is not in use. Doing so will shorten the life of the get out gasket.

I don’t know about you, but I find my steam wand drips now and again, because I don’t tend to screw the steam tap too tight. Mine rests over the drip tray.

Of course this could’ve been just for the photo, in which case you can ignore all of the above apart from the first word. 👍

The journey begins properly now. Only serious business from now on. 😂

Apologies for resurrecting an old post, but could anyone recommend a reliable route to acquiring an Ankarsrum, please? Thanks.

Today I got my Low profile drip tray for my Classic, direct from @MrShades in a fetching red (because black sold out). Finally I have the same room below the brew group on my Classic as I have on my Baby! I can fit a shot pitcher and scale under a spouted portafilter!
